From College Success Foundation: In partnership with Seattle University, the College Success Foundation is sponsoring a FLUX Training on October, 18th from 10-6pm at Seattle University.
FLUX is an intensive full day workshop designed by Foster Care Alumni of America (FCAA) to support youth transitioning out of foster care. According to their website, “If you talk to most alumni [of foster care], they will say they were ill prepared to anticipate and strategize for the precarious phase between being a dependent foster youth and a healthy, independent adult.” This workshop imparts young adults from foster care with all of the information more than 100 alumni of care WISH they had known before aging out of care. Learn more about FLUX here.
This will be a great opportunity for students to come together with people who share their background and to develop a common language for processing the transition they are experiencing.
The training can accommodate up to 25 youth (16-24) participants and is fairly costly ($175 per student). The College Success Foundation is able to subsidize the event so that the cost to the colleges per student is just $50 plus travel costs. CSF, SU and FCAA will provide all program materials, lunch and snacks. CPTC should be able to pay for the remaining fees.
